General Motors has named William Tiger as plant manager for its Lockport Components Holdings plant.
Tiger, a Florida native, was most recently plant manager for a GM facility near Baltimore. Another of his previous GM positions was assistant plant manager for a GM engine plant in St. Catharines, Ont. Tiger is a Miccosukee Indian and a founding member of the General Motors Native American Cultural Network.
The Lockport plant, which has about 1,600 employees, makes a variety of automotive heating and cooling products.
Patrick Curtis, the Lockport plant manager for several years, was named plant manager for a GM transmission facility in Warren, Mich. Last fall, GM announced a $240 million investment in the Warren plant, to make the electric drive unit for the second-generation Chevrolet Volt.
